If you zoom in too quickly, Google Maps may claim that it does not have the needed maps. Zoom back out, wait a few seconds to allow maps to load in the background, and then zoom in again.
If more than one point is mapped for the marked individual, the map also displays chevrons to guide you from the first sighting (shown as a green icon) to each subsequent sighting over time. The chevrons do NOT represent a path of travel, just a sequential link across time.

|"It's easy to think of sharks in terms of apex predators--that is, when we think "shark" we too often jump to white sharks, or bull sharks. It's important to remember that sharks are incredibly diverse and help to balance many different ecosystems within the ocean. Understanding more about them will help us protect biodiversity, and ensure a healthy future for not just the sharks, but the oceans. I have always loved sharks, and encourage people to take the time to see their many faces--get to know them! "|
